If you struggle with portion eating or maintaining a low-calorie diet, we can help you plan your own reduced-calorie diet to help you achieve rapid weight loss.
A reduced-calorie diet includes consumption of at least 25 percent lesser calories than you are accustomed to. Reduced calorie diets help lose weight and are recommended for patients who have a weight loss goal of 5-15 pounds.
A reduced diet not only makes you lose weight, but it is also a conscious, healthy lifestyle you choose to make. Choosing to be on a reduced-calorie diet means controlling how many calories you intake. In addition, for the best weight loss results, you need to eat healthily and have regular physical activity.
A Very Low-Calorie Diet is recommended for patients with a Body Mass Index of 30 or higher. A VLCD is very effective for rapid weight loss and helps with reducing blood sugars and lowering the risks associated with obesity. Our Weight Loss Nutritionist and Weight Loss Doctor will work together to provide you with the correct supplementation and diet plan when you are on your VLCD to achieve your weight loss goals in a quick, effective, and easy manner.
If you can follow through with reducing your calorie intake and regularly working out, the reduced-calorie diet should work. The New England Journal of Medicine published one study comparing varying diet plans to see which was the most effective. The study’s outcome proves that a diet plan that causes an individual to ingest fewer calories will be beneficial in losing weight.
One study granted by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of National Institute of Health found that reduced calorie intake, regardless of contrast between proportions of protein, fat, and carbohydrates, can help obese and overweight individuals achieve weight loss.
To make the reduced-calorie diet as healthy as possible, you must get a good array of foods, including three macronutrients: carbohydrates, protein, and fats.
Our Weight Loss Nutritionist is here to help you create a customized meal plan with specific calorie requirements to achieve optimal weight loss.
A significant amount of studies have shown that replacing meals with lower-calorie levels around 800-1000 calories has produced weight loss similar to diets seen with much lower calorie levels, which is probably due to better compliance with diets. The purpose of VLCDs is to create rapid weight loss and may allow you to lose on average 3 to 5 pounds per week. Doing this may lead to an average total of about 44 pounds over 12 weeks.
Rapid weight loss like this can possibly improve overall health and medical conditions linked to obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. For example, VLCDs may allow you to lose about 3 to 5 pounds per week. This may lead to an average total weight loss of 44 pounds over 12 weeks. Such a weight loss can rapidly improve medical conditions linked to obesity, including diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.
The idea behind the fast weight loss associated with the VLCD can be very motivating and can create an overall healthier lifestyle. Patients who decide to be proactive from the suggested VLCD program can improve weight loss from 15 to 25 percent of their initial weight during the first 3 to 6 months.
